John Cena Gives Epic Response to Former WWE Rival Dwayne Johnson's Toothbrush Threat
John Cena fired back in memorable style after Dwayne Johnson jokingly threatened him on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
On Tuesday night Jimmy Kimmel asked Johnson, who was on the show to promote his upcoming film Rampage, about his former rivalry with Cena on the WWE, where both performed before they acted in movies. Johnson noted that while now the two are "best friends" they used to have "real problems with each other."
Johnson gave Kimmel a message to send to Cena when he came on the show the following night. "When you do see him, just send him my love ... and [tell him] just DJ wants to remind you, if he ever acts up, I will knock his teeth so far down his throat that he'll stick a toothbrush up his ass to brush them." With prodding from Kimmel, Johnson then added that the toothbrush would be manual and have soft bristles.
When Kimmel delivered the message on Wednesday night to Cena, the actor responded with an epic rant. "Why would you say those things to me?" he first asked Kimmel.
Then he added: "I'm not gonna take that. I'm not gonna take that. Listen up, Dwayne Johnson, if that is your real name," he said. "If you think you're making threats to me by [threatening me with a toothbrush], pal — And by pal, I totally mean my best friend, I don't mean it in an adversarial sense — watch Blockers and then watch it again, because if you think shoving a toothbrush up my butt is a threat, you've got news coming pal, there's been a funnel up there, there's been a parking cone. There's more traffic in that region than a Monday on the 405 in both directions," Cena said. "I'm not gonna take this lying down. Let's analyze what a toothbrush does. It cleans, right? Your threat to me is you wanna clean my butt? OK, pal, you got the job, but if I was you I'd bring latex gloves because down there it's like a Mississippi cornfield in a downpour. It is just all mud and vegetation, pal. So the question I have for you, T-he-Rock, is do you really want to smell what John Cena's putting out."
Kimmel ended the segment by saying, "That was absolutely beautiful."
Cena was on the show to promote the teen sex comedy Blockers, which will go head to head with Johnson's Rampage at the box office when the latter is released on April 13.
